Are These Companies Unethical?

Dear Experts, Many companies ended up "rescinded and/or deferring" offers to interns/co-ops and full-time job candidates. Now, less than 6 months later (less than 1 month for some) they are starting to line-up recruiting activities on-campus and advertise jobs for next year's candidates. What should be the reaction of the campus career centers? The Colleges of graduates/students that were affected? From the students at the campuses themselves? I've heard about everything, but haven't seen anything "outlined and executed" yet. Here is how the T.A.P. experts answered on Twitter: @beneubanks Q#124 Can't say what reaction "should be." I'd get the word out about the unethical activities. Word of mouth is very powerful. @kgrantcareers Q#124 Sorry, it's "just the way it goes". Stick 2 plan. Market self 4 positions as if all these things hadn't happened B4. @juliaerickson Q#124 Career office can tell students how company operated as fair warning so they can apply more than 1 place. @sweetcareers Q#124 Here is a A NACE Position Statement on Rescinded/Deferred Employment Offers: http://is.gd/AfDy @DebraWheatman Q# 124 Life isn't fair. You fell victim to a rough economy. Reapply and explain that you were extended an offer previously. @jtodonnell Q#124 Re-apply to company who is hiring on campus. You are an alum - so you can go to the job fair & wow them! @jtodonnell Q#124 At CAREEREALISM.com we say, "EVERY Job is Temporary." Expect companies to offer & rescind, it's reality. @dawnbugni Q#124 It serves no one to hold to a grudge. Good exposure to need 4 "eyes wide open" informed job research 4 all.

Last week during my Office Hours on Youtube, a client asked about how to deal with a workplace bully. After spending many years in corporate HR, I flipped to the other side and became a career therapist. So, I've seen both sides of this situation in the workplace. In this video, I discuss why people struggle to deal with bullies and what you can do to change the situation instantly.

This week, I did something that truly scared me. I sent an email to over 120,000 Work It Daily newsletter subscribers and asked them to answer the question, "What do we do?"
